Two more rounds to go

posted by:

Only two more rounds to go!  Chemo went well on Wednesday.  The port is still working well and I didn’t have a reaction to the Taxol. 

Today the achiness and pain is really starting to set in.  The good news is that I didn’t have to get a Neulasta shot after chemo because my white blood cell count was at a good level.  Neulasta can add to the bone, muscle and joint pain.  So I hope that by not having the shot I won’t be so uncomfortable this time around. 

I see an end in sight.  Thank you for your prayers, help, concern, thoughts, emails, etc.  They mean so much to me. 

Have a great weekend!

    Dear Lindy,
    We are thankful for the good news of your white blood cell count being at a good level. I’m no doctor, but it seems like that is a very good thing. And as a Christian, I thank God for His answers to prayer, however they come. Now, as a new round of Chemo runs through your body, remember that God’s healing touch is also running through your body. We hope, pray, and trust that you feel His presence penetrating your every cell, and guiding your every thought, bringing peace to your spirit. Our love & prayers go on & on & on…

    Had a wonderful time with Brooklyn last night and today. She is wise beyond her years. Such a sensitive little girl.
    I’m thankful that you didn’t need the Neulasta shot this time….God willing you will begin to feel better in a couple of days and you will have a few good days before the next treatment.
    Boldly praying for your complete healing!
    Love you all!!

    So thankful that you got to skip the Neulasta shot this time. Will pray for your counts to stay good so that you don’t have to get that the last two rounds as well. God definitely has His hand over you! Keep up your strong faith! Your prayers are being answered.

    Hi Lindy…. Glad to hear that your feeling somewhat better.We had such a nice time Sat. A.M. with the twins and Brooklyn. The twins are just adorable !!! I still get a “special” feeling when I hold Samantha. She certainly is an answer to prayer. We pray that you will have a good day today. God’s Blessings to you. Love and Hugs, Mom and Dad

    hi Lindy!

    I was thinking of you yesterday morning (as I do always) as I was reading my devotions…One of my favorite stories in the Bible is 2 Chronicles 20: 1-30… Focus on verses 15-17, and then the best is vs. 24. I know God will get you through this…we are praying for you constantly!! I can only imagine the days of questioning, frustration, sadness, etc. but I know that you know that God is bigger than all that, so hold on very tight to Him.

    Hope you are feeling well! We think of you each day and Anna prays for your family at bedtime. We’d love to see Brooklyn again – let us know when it works for you!

    Hi Lindy…just wanted to let you know that I’m praying for you and think of you daily. I hope you are feeling good today and continue to stay strong…you are such an amazing woman. I pray that things may go smoothly with your kids and Dusty too. Hang in there!

    Hi Lindy, If you need any help once school starts, I have mornings open. Roman and Brooklyn in kindergarten. Hard to believe.
    I was being nosey last night and looking for the laps for Lindy info. Is Clair or anyone else taking for pledges?

  14. Jana Ver Beek says:

    Have a good weekend, Lindy. I hope you can get out to the Conference Grounds for a change of scenery.
    Had a nice visit with Dusty and the kids this morning at Dad and Mom’s. We missed you. Prayers and love,
